Art for the Soul

Art for the Soul

The Order of the Daughters of the King (DOK) here at St. James’ Episcopal Church is excited to begin a new ministry this May, Art for the Soul. Each month different artists will have their pieces displayed in Fowler Hall. Artwork will include paintings and other forms of art, such as pottery, jewelry and more.   This new program will allow the artist to showcase and sell art to the members of St. James’ as well as others who attend various programs throughout the month.

DOK will use its proceeds from Art for the Soul to support outreach ministries.      Please come visit our display in Fowler Hall. Purchases can be made by contacting DOK at dok.st.jamesjxn@gmail.com or by calling Cathy Richardson at 601-572-5096.  

We are excited to bring back Candy Cain for the month of August. This month, she will exhibit her silk, boutique fabric paintings. Members of St. James have enjoyed Candy’s work for years, as her banners are hung in the church during Pentecost.

Candy CainCandy Cain is gracious for her ‘ life of art’! She has been drawing and painting since the age of four. After receiving a BFA from Southern MS, she taught art in the public school system for 30 years. Retirement from the classroom only increased her involvement in the arts community. Candy is a ‘FELLOW ‘ member of the Craftsman’s Guild of MS with her Batik and is also a double member with her mixed media. She loves doing shows and commissions. She travels across the Southeast doing art shows and selling her work. Candy consults, teaches teachers how to incorporate arts into the classroom curriculum, and visits classrooms around the state. She is honored to be involved with Art for the Soul at St. James!
